Recently whenever I watch the pv for "Ganbacchae!" I'm always so amazed at how little the then future members of Berryz Koubou & C-ute are in this pv…and how much they've grown in such a short period of time since then! It's only been a little over 5 years since this pv's release and while most of the H!P Kids are easily recognizable a few of them aren't so easy to spot such as Airichan, Nakki, and little Maimai who just looked so different back then!
The pv's really cute and if you haven't seen it yet watch it here! 🙂
While reminiscing I always wish that I had acquired some early UFA photos of the future stars of BK & C-ute while they were still part of the H!P Kids as they'd be a great reference point to have, so when I saw that Ohta was selling a complete set of photos of the current H!P Eggs along with a great looking photo holder I thought I'd better purchase one so that I don't repeat this mistake again.
Ah! and since its release in late 2007 two members have already graduated from this set including Korenaga Miki & Yutoku Ayumi! And while Korenaga Miki is now active in Ongaku Gatas…Ayumichan where have you gone?! Perhaps Keisan knows… 😛
H!P's path has been a quite bumpy one lately and with the future so full of possibilities…I wondered what Conan O'Brien might envision had he darkened the room and held a flashlight under his chin for a few minutes…oh and we'll need his old sidekick too so that the room may be filled with eerie operatic insight! Hmmm…Conan's got some strange…well let's just have a look……….
"In the year 2012………..the little hearts in Akari's autograph are alleged to share too much of a resemblance to Kominecchi's little hearts , subsequently Akari is charged with plagiarism but after a press conference is held where Akari clearly points out that there's a subtle difference in the in the curve at the top of her hearts..all charges are dropped….meanwhile Tsunku re-unites with "7 House" and on opening night of their tour while performing Ayaya's hit "Momoiro kataomoi" things go terribly wrong when Tsunku nearly falls after being launched from the floor by a springboard and the "magical" flame that is supposed to ignite at the finish takes too long to appear in his open palm creating much laughter amongst the audience and much sweat from Tsunku's forehead……wait…he's already done that one with Sharan Q many years ago."
"In the year 2012………..Yuukarin is said to be dating a super hero actor but as Friday magazine attempts to capture a photo of her rumored super hero "boyfriend"….photos surface showing Yuukarin having lunch with a giant Pikachuu instead….meanwhile Mikitty releases her first instructional book titled "The Idol's Guide To Going On Dates Without Being Caught." Meanwhile Tsunku stars in "Run Tsunku!!"…a remake of "Pinch Runner" with Tsunku himself starring as every character in the movie through special makeup & effects!…but this time there's no school, no classmates…just Tsunku running from a bunch of angry fans led by Eddie Murphy! :O
……Fukuda Kanin was also chosen for the new unit but after some careful consideration Tsunku deemed that the groups' name would be "way too long" if he included her but with some quick thinking and in an attempt to try and save face Tsunku revives "Minomoni" & "Coconut's Musume" by creating "Mini Coconut" which is said to include Kanin, Sawachan, Konacchan, & Ayaka."
"In the year 2012………….Enna is rumored to be getting married creating shock waves throughout the H!P community but after the situation is sorted it turns out that all that happened was Yukosan's….umm…I mean Keisan's wedding invitations got mixed up with Enna's birthday party invitations due to a clerical error at Tsunku's farm." Whew that was a close one!!! 😛 Meanwhile Tsunku holds the "Love Audition 12" but after reviewing all of the entries and holding out for weeks he decides that it's time for him to live his lifelong dream to join Momusu and he becomes the sole 12th Generation member." :O Every thing seems to go "smoothly" until one day when Jun Jun sees Tsunku eating her banana….Tsunku isn't seen for a few weeks. :O
"In the year 2012………………….Friday reveals an alleged "love triangle" involving "Yuukarin" & Anchan when Anchan is seen in a restaurant accompanied by a giant Pikachuu…however after facing reporters alongside Tsunku the public soon learns that Anchan's Pikachuu friend is just some other person that enjoys dressing up as Pikachuu whenever they leave the house." Just a few days later Tsunku joins Berryz Koubou becoming their new 8th member…Momo isn't pleased as Tsunku declares his stage color to be pink! :O
"In the year 2012…………………..an unnamed source claiming to be a childhood "friend" sells his story to a gossip magazine revealing that he once held Mucchi's hand while standing in line in their school's cafeteria. Fans are outraged but then puzzled as to why a magazine would pay for such a ridiculous story………….
…Rii "the cleaner" Sugaya is sent in to "clean" things up. Let's just say he won't be playing "Puyo Puyo" for a long long time. :O
"In the year 2012………….Morisaki's graduation from H!P is announced after her neighbor's cousin's mechanic from down the street has a repeat run in with the law…fans are outraged and somewhere…Gocchin is shaking her head."
Meanwhile Tsunku creates a new unit "Tetsudaiku" (手伝い大工) with members Saaya, Mia, & Keisan as work on his second mansion begins and in the process they record the 30th version of "Furusato" while on lunch breaks. :O
